A fabulous number of fans wit

Nld Crabtree and Buttling FltVpflin.
At the end of the tenth round the
judges were in a quandry as to who
had won. The fnn were filled with
ebullition. One Judge t aid Crabtree
should be commended for his box
ing. He remarked that he was fill
ed with conpunction over Shepflin'
showing. The other Judge main
tained that Crabtree's upper-cut
were superfluous but Shepflin'
puissant rabbit punches were enough
to subvert Crabtree. The taciturn
referee said in a veracious statement
that neither one tried to hurt the
other.t Therefore, the match was a
draw. While the officials were
wrangling over the decision a piece
of culinary furnishing hit Crabtree
on the head. Crabtree simulated
that he was unconscious. Crabtree's
manager shouted an ominous threat
against the person who threw crock
ery. The referee made a succinct
speech that the match was a draw
and why it was.

Co. Supt. Brumbaugh at
Mr. Brumbaugh, our county echool
superintendent, visited Maupin Fri
day. In the afternoon Mr. Brum
baugb consented to address the High
school and Seventh and Eighth
grades when requested by students.
In an informal talk Mr. Brumbaugh
gave the students some plea-ing
word of advice, lie spoke to the
I pupils of the above grades about
their coming state examinations. He
stated a problem on the blackboard
that had been missed by all who at
tempted to solve it in a former
Eighth grids arithmetic examination,
'and Jim Slut her proved the hero of
the hour by solving the problem.
Mr. Brumbaugh told of hia base
ball experiences and his enjoyment
of the game. That afternoon he at-

PLACES OF INTEREST AROUND
Perhaps the Deschutes river Is
Maupin' chief natural source of at
traction to residents and visitors who
come to this Interesting point. This
river, unhsmnered by power plants,
is rated as one-of the best trout fish
ing stream In Oregon. The Oak
Sprig hatchery keeps the river
well snpptUd with rainbow trout.
This hatachery turns off 1,670,000
trout from 6 to 12 inches long an
nually. Each of the three pools hold
over 650,000 fish. The springs
themselves arc beautiful cascades
which pour out of the canyon walls
into the river. '
The new steel-concrete bridge
costing 1100,000 is a thing of beauty.
The curved approach allows a fast
crossing without danger. The
bridge is finished in white diatomace
ous earth. The railing; and details
of the bridge are well deserving of
notice and appreciation.
When Lewis and Clark passed the
mouth of the Deschutes it was called
Townhnahlooks by the Indiana. The
French name is more suggestive of
the turbulence of the ctream. 'Al
though the river is comparatively
young, it has cut a great gorge
down through the deep lava flows.
While In the canyon one cannot re
frain from expressions of wonder at
the grandeur of the towering w;Hs
and their fantastic structure.
Numerous creeks empty their
water Into the Deschutes. BaWe
cen It one of the larger streams.
This name did not originate fr?m
cxecessive heat but from a bak;;'s
oven onee built within the canyon.
It seems that a freighter In travel
ing from The Dalles to Canyon City
with a load of flour lost hia horses
in the vicinity. This man, who was
a baker by trade, in order to realize
a profit, built an oven, baked hi3
supply of flour into bread and sold
it to the passing traffic of freighters
CUBS DEFEAT DUFUR
Last Friday the Dufur baseball
stars were defeated by the Cubs f
Maupin on the home diamond. The
(core at the end of the seven innings
stood 4-0 In favor of the Maupin
growlers. This is the first shut out
they have imposed this season. Elton
pitched to Orvillc for Maupin while
Knight pitched and Rtcuber caught
for the visitors. RnodgrasFraley
scored seven strike outs while
Knight-Steuber got eleven strike
outs. . " ' '
Bothwcll g'ot a lucky hit that
brought in two runs for Maupin,
whilo Val made several snappy
catches in tupport of the battery.
All the Cubs were on their toes and
played an air-tight game. ,
Tho crowd donated $6.30 . for
Hits in the game were made as

He interested every business and
professional man in the enterprise
and last Saturday evening every
radio in town wis tuned in on KOIN.
A fine musical program was render
ed, this being Interspersed by talks
about various people of Maupin.
Hedin's voice came through as clear
as a bell, as did other numbers sent
out. ' . .
Aj a special number Governor
Norblad gave a talk on the oppor
tunity to catch fish in the Deschutes.
His talk was interesting and edify

W. H. Staats, snng a special number
dedicated to Mrs. Staats.
In a letter to The Thnec Mr. Bed
in says that many telegrams com
mending the program were received
from The " Dalles, Seaside, Salem,
Bend, and other places as well as
many phone messages from Portland
folks. One listener in," a Portland

was thoroughly enjoyed and I
mean enjoyed. My old blood is slow
to warm up but H was seething be
fore you went off the air, for I
know what the old De. chutes, offers
to fishermen. There is no stream
that will equal It, and you can well
afford to wake up and tell the world-
about your "gold mine."

of about three miles of strew, and
altho we did not know it, we fished
the same three miles the day a'ter
